D.C. Creates COVID Vaccine Outreach Workforce

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said the city has created a coronavirus vaccine outreach workforce.

Starting Monday, the District will work with seven different local community-based organizations that receive DC HOPE grants.

Each organization will create a team of 150 people that will “be dedicated to engaging unvaccinated residents and helping them make a plan to get vaccinated,” according to the mayor’s office.

“Going forward, we need an all-hands-on-deck approach to ensure every eligible person in our community claims their free COVID-19 vaccine,” the mayor said Thursday during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a mobile vaccination pod at the Mary’s Center Fort Totten Clinic in Ward 5.

The organizations include:

• Anacostia Coordinating Council
• Check It Enterprises
• Congress Heights Community Training and Development Corporation
• Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative
• Latin American Youth Center
• Marshall Heights Community Development Organization
• National Association for the Advancement of Returning Citizens

The mayor’s office said in a statement that the teams will collaborate with faith leaders, barbershops, beauty salons and youth organizations “to hear residents’ concerns, share accurate and reliable vaccine information, and follow up with residents after making plans to get vaccinated.”
